Dozens of Schools Celebrate Kindness on #Nov38

The campaign that turned an error into a celebration of caring and generosity continues through the holiday season.

During Monday's kickoff of the #Nov38 Do Something Great campaign, dozens of schools posted pictures and descriptions of generous and kind acts to social media sites. Using the hashtag #Nov38, they posted to Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.  

The Albuquerque Public Schools wall calendar designates the Monday after Thanksgiving as Nov. 38. Obviously, that’s a typo, but the district decided to turn the mistake into an opportunity to celebrate kindness and giving.

The campaign continues through the holiday season. Keep sharing good news using the hashtag #Nov38.Those who aren’t on social media can email the pictures and stories to the APS Communications Office which will post on their behalf.

In addition, APS will record these acts of kindness to the ABQKindness app in an effort to help the city reach its goal of a million acts of kindness.
